Serena Williams will look to keep her fairytale 2022 US Open campaign going on Friday when she takes on Ajla Tomljanovic for a place in the fourth round.

The legendary Williams cruised past underdog Danka Kovinic in the first round of the tournament before meeting World No.2 Anett Kontaveit.

Many expected the Estonian to comfortably beat Williams in her twilight tournament, but the home hero dug deep to advance into the third round, where she will now take on Ajla Tomljanovic.

Here is everything you need to know about Tomljanovic.

Who is Ajla Tomljanovic?

Ajla Tomljanovic is a Croatian-Australian tennis player who is currently ranked 46th on the women's singles ladder.

The 29-year-old reached the quarter-finals of Wimbledon a couple of months ago, matching her best-ever career Grand Slam finish.

Tomljanovic has enjoyed less success at the US Open historically, failing to progress beyond the second round in each of her first seven US Open appearances before reaching the third round last time out in 2021.

Serena Williams now stands in the way of Tomljanovic and a career-best US Open finish this summer.
